Bradley Manning Trial: After 3 Years, Army Whistleblower Begins Court Martial Shrouded in Secrecy fb.me/28ZbEnPF0From USA Today Army Pfc. Bradley Manning dumped hundreds of thousands of sensitive documents on to the Internet and into enemy hands, a prosecutor said Monday at the beginning of a trial for the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history. Manning, a 25-year-old former intelligence analyst from Oklahoma, has admitted to giving troves of information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, but military prosecutors are trying to prove Manning aided the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence. From The Huffington Post On Monday, Manning's trial begins. The 25-year-old faces life in prison for his leaks. The potential implications of the proceedings on this sprawling military base outside Washington, D.C. go far beyond his fate alone. The most serious charge the government has laid against Manning is aiding the enemy. The charge rests on the novel legal theory that Manning should have known that his disclosures could wind up in the hands of Osama bin Laden -- as they apparently did.
